The beauty of Belhaven at Banjo Creek Estates – Washington Daily News
With picturesque views of Pungo Creek and dedicated waterfront access, this Belhaven home offers the perfect slice of southern charm.
This home is located in the waterfront community of Banjo Creek Estates in Belhaven and offers a private boat launch and waterfront access to residents. This boat launch provides easy access to Pungo Creek and the great Pamlico River, as well as the birthplace of the inter-coastal waterway around Belhaven for boaters and jet skiers.
Built in 1987, the home features a cheerful yellow paint over vinyl exterior siding with a large and well-maintained wrap-around front porch. Inside, the house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms and has 1,896 square feet of living space. The roof has recently been completely redone and the air conditioning system on the ground floor received an upgrade in 2018.
The homes built at Banjo Creek Estates are all considered single family homes and were built between 1987 and 1999. On average, homes in the community sell for $ 478,980 and have approximately 2,600 square feet of living space.
The spacious master suite is a unit on the ground floor and offers space and privacy compared to the other two bedrooms, located on the second floor. A large picture window lets in lots of natural light and illuminates the master bedroom with a picturesque view of the waterfront community. In addition to the main bathroom, another bathroom is located on the main level with the third bathroom located on the second floor along with the other two bedrooms.
The kitchen features classic black and white tiles arranged in a plaid pattern, which was popularized as a design choice in the 1680s when the pattern was used in the French Palace at Versailles. Stainless steel appliances and classic whitewashed cabinetry brighten up the space, and a window over the sink offers stunning views of the nearby Pungo Creek. A small bar is located in the center of the kitchen with space for two occupants and offers a direct view out the window towards Pungo Creek.
This home is the only home located in Banjo Creek Estates that is not considered a waterfront property. For this reason, the home does not require flood insurance while still providing access to the amenities that come with being a homeowner in this waterfront community. The house has a screened back porch with plenty of room to entertain guests, as well as a large storage shed perfect for keeping tools and other useful items safe.
